Neighbors Enjoy Summer Cocktail Fundraiser

Excellent, refreshing summer soirée! Classic tunes, a cold beer and getting to know the people that live down the street! Thanks again to the Blood family for opening their beautiful home and pool to their neighbors on this hot day!



June Yard of the Month

Congratulations to the home at 2415 W. Tenth St. that was selected as Yard of the Month for June! They have done an excellent job of using drought tolerant plants and landscaping to keep their home looking gorgeous. Thanks for making Kessler Plaza an even more beautiful Oak Cliff neighborhood!


Neighbors Enjoyed Annual Fourth of July Picnic

More than 80 neighbors gathered in Moss Park on July 4, 2014 for the annual Kessler Plaza Neighborhood Picnic! A good time was had by all!



Have you Joined or Renewed Your Membership to NOCUPP?

Wouldn’t it be great to have additional patrols through Kessler Plaza by uniformed, off-duty police officers, driving marked squad cars? We have the opportunity to do just that through our continued participation in the North Oak Cliff United Police Patrol (NOCUPP).

What is NOCUPP?
NOCUPP is a non-profit organization that manages the Expanded Neighborhood Patrol program in seven North Oak Cliff neighborhoods.

Why should I join NOCUPP?
As a NOCUPP subscriber, you do your part to reduce crime in our neighborhood. When you join, your name and information is provided to our NOCUPP police officers who use the information to learn who belongs at your home and when, and who doesn’t. Members can call patrolling officers directly using a dedicated cell phone number. NOCUPP officers respond within minutes when they are on duty. NOCUPP also provides alarm response, even if the home has had false alarms in the past.

We all know we live in one of the most beautiful areas of our city. By working together, we can help keep it one of the safest. If you are willing to commit to being a part of this program, please contact our KPNA NOCUPP representative, Nola Rae Smith at or (214) 536-4640.

City of Dallas Twice-Weekly Watering Schedule

No watering is allowed on Mondays, Tuesdays or Fridays and watering is prohibited between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. on the allowed watering days. Drip irrigation, soaker hoses and hand-watering are permitted on any day.

Please note the schedule below for allowed watering days based upon the last digit of your street address.

Simple Steps to Help Prevent Home Burglaries

Most residential burglaries are crimes of opportunity. Criminals look for easy targets where the risk of detection is low. Chances are good you can lower the burglary appeal at your home by improving security. The more you do to keep your home from looking like an easy mark, the greater your chances of avoiding a break-in.
